A deconstructed Have Gun, Will Travel plays the New World music hall, with the Americana band’s drummer Sam Farmer sharing the bill with HGWT frontman Matt Burke (pictured).
Farmer—who’ll wear a songwriter hat for this gig—is joined by bassist Mark Cunningham, drummer Devin Neel, and Rob Pastore on pedal steel guitar.
Burke recently released a “scrappy, lo-fi” collection of his home demos, and if you’ve seen him live, then you know Burke’s emotional folk-rock guitar-vocal-harmonica mashup provides the perfect soundtrack for sipping whiskey and forgetting the week that was (ICYMI, New World now serves liquor).
While you’re there, check out Sam Williams playing surf-rock in the biergarten starting at 7:30 p.m.
Sam Farmer and friends w/Matt Burke. Friday, April 23, 8 p.m. Tables start at $40. New World Brewery, Tampa. newworldtampa.com
